How can I add videos from YouTube or other video hosting platforms?


Including videos on your SK Wiki page can help to make your content more engaging and dynamic. Here are some guidelines for adding videos from YouTube or another video hosting platform when creating an SK Wiki page:


  1. Choose Relevant Videos: Choose videos that are relevant to the content of the article. Videos should help to provide additional context and information to the reader.


  1. Log in to your Sportskeeda Account: Before adding a video to an SK Wiki page, you need to have an account. If you don't have one, create one by clicking on the "Create account" button at the top right corner of the page.


  1. Go to the Page Where You Want to Add the Video: Find the page you want to add the video to and click on the "Edit" button located near the top of the page.




  1. Open the YouTube Video: Open the YouTube video you want to add to the SK Wiki page in a separate window or tab.



  1. Copy the Video Embed Code: On the YouTube video page, click on the "Share" button and then on the "Embed" button. This will display a box with the video's embed code. Copy the code by right-clicking on it and selecting "Copy" or by using the keyboard shortcut "Ctrl + C."



  1. Add the Embed Code to the SK Wiki Page: Go back to the SK Wiki page you're editing and click on the location where you want to add the video. Then, paste the embed code you copied in step 4 by right-clicking and selecting "Paste" or by using the keyboard shortcut "Ctrl + V."




  1. Preview and Save the Page: Before saving the page, it's a good idea to preview it to make sure the video appears correctly. To do this, click on the "Preview" button near the top of the page. If everything looks good, click on the "Publish" button to save and publish the page.




  1. Verify the Video is Working: After saving the page, go back to the live version of the page and verify that the video is working correctly.


  1. Use a Consistent Format: Use a consistent format for all embedded videos. This will help to make the videos easier to identify and will improve the overall look and feel of the page.


  1. Place the Video Strategically: Place the video strategically within the article. Consider placing the video in a relevant section of the text or at the end of the article for further viewing.


  1. Use Descriptive Titles and Descriptions: Give each video a descriptive title and description. This will help to provide context for the reader and make it easier for them to understand the purpose of the video.


  1. Provide Alternate Text: Provide alternate text for the video in case the video cannot be viewed. This text should provide a description of the content of the video.


  1. Avoid Overloading the Page: Avoid adding too many videos to a single page. This can become overwhelming for the reader and may cause them to lose focus.


In conclusion, including videos on your SK Wiki page can help to make your content more engaging and dynamic. By following these guidelines, you can add relevant and well-formatted videos that will help to provide additional context and information to the reader. This will help to improve the overall experience of using your SK Wiki page.
